When considering the fees of a tax accountant for inheritance, it is necessary to consider not only the preparation of the inheritance tax return, but also the tax investigation after the inheritance tax return has been filed.
At our tax firm, there are no fees or costs for attending an inheritance tax audit, and we also provide tax support after the inheritance tax return has been filed.
